We love featuring Adam Hughes in the Art Appreciation Moment of the Day, as we wrap the week with his Spider-Man piece from this year’s San Diego Comic Con.

Here’s a Spider-Man I did at San Diego Comic-Con, for one of three pre-sold sketches auctioned off on eBay.

I had a pencil sketch of Catwoman started, and in my exhausted SDCC-state, I thought it’d be an easy switcheroo to repencil it as Spidey. Hence the bizarre cat-scratch hand (sorry, James; you deserve my honesty). The word balloon was added in PS. It doesn’t really make the bad go away, hunh?

Pencil, PITT pen, warm & cool gray COPIC markers, Dr. Ph Marten’s Bleed-Proof White on Strathmore Drawing paper.

    Good thing that word balloon was added, more jokes could have been made about his pose if it wasn’t there.
